So it is Halloweek (aren't I clever) and I have already kicked it off by watching the Paranormal Activity series. Right now I have Scream 4 on the background (and no, I am not writing this review right now because I am scared and all the lights are off; that would be silly). I am also planning on watching a bunch of the horror films from the list this week but I won't blog about them until we get there chronologically.
Gun Crazy is not scary at all unfortunately. What it is is Bonnie and Clyde with more likable characters. The movie is about Bart, who is obsessed with guns. As seemingly creepy as that sounds, he actually never wants to hurt anyone. He then meets the woman of his dreams who is also a crack shot (of course, he is a little bit better than her though because she is a woman). She drags him down to a life of crime though, as women are prone to do in noir. We suck.
Anyway, the acting and the story is just so-so. The film takes absolutely no risks and a crime movie, that can be a bit boring. Still, there is no denying the influence it had over Bonnie and Clyde which is an undeniable classic. Now I must go because we are reaching the climax. Yay, gore!
All right, maybe I am freaking out a little.
